True to its RGB moniker, the G213 Gaming Keyboard has customisable LED backlights up to 16.8 million colours for you to find that personalised colour. In the heat of battle too you can change up your music without ever leaving the game with the dedicated media controls button on the keyboard. You can even turn the volume up or down when you wish to. On top of that you have a keyboard designed for high-performance gaming. The Keyboard features anti-ghosting matrix to keep control in your hands even when you are mashing multiple keys simultaneously. Each key is designed to give ultra-quick, responsive feedback up to four times faster than standard keyboards while giving a tactile feel. The best part is that you get an integrated palm rest to ensure the highest level of comfort during gameplay. It is even water resistant so you do not have to worry about a spill or two on the keyboard.
